Cool Intermittant Power

We discovered we are having intermittant power disruption in the center section of our 1994 Thor Residency. This affects the fridge, galley area and the outlets up to the front sitting room area. Any one have a wiring schematic that might help locate the issue. Experiences or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I assume you are only talking 120VAC disruption. Is the power going off and on by itself, or are you tripping circuit breakers? Does this happen with genny, shore or both?

It was intermittant, but has become permanent. Does not trip breakers. Just no power to the center of the coach on shore or generator. May have to take it to an expert. Wiring is so concealed it's hard to find. Thank you for your reply

It's could be a GFI outlet tripped at this point. Trip and reset all GFI outlets in the coach just to be sure.

Failing that, sounds like a loose connection at the circuit breaker in the breaker panel for the center of the coach.

Disconnect shore power and have generator off. Remove all covers in the breaker box so all wires to all circuit breakers are exposed. You may have to make other adjustments but, the object is to gain access so you can tighten each wire on each circuit breaker.

With that done, firmly trip each breaker by hand, then firmly reset the breaker.

Now connect shore power and see if it's corrected. If not, then the problem is most likely the first or second outlet in that circuit. You would then need to check the connections at each outlet in that circuit for loose connections.
